Symphojazz with echoes of Broadway on New Year's Eve

At the Liepāja Symphony New Year's concert, which will take place on December 28 and 30 at 7 p.m. in the “Lielais dzintars” concert hall, the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra invites you to celebrate the passing year 2022 magnificently. The festive concert program together with the singer Beāte Zviedre will take the audience on a musical journey in the world of symphony jazz with the echoes of Broadway music.

Conductor Guntis Kuzma, Artistic Director of the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra, has chosen light and sparkling music from the golden repertoire of American jazz classics George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein and Cole Porter. The concert will feature instrumental excerpts as well as many popular songs from various Broadway musicals and beyond - Gershwin's “Fascinating Rhythm”, Bernstein's I “Feel Pretty” or Porter's “I Love Paris” and many other favourites of the decades.

Together with the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra under the guidance of conductor Guntis Kuzma, Beāte Zviedre - a singer with a delicate and nuanced voice, a wide range and versatile musical experience, trained in both jazz and academic singing - will take to the stage of “Lielais dzintars” this evening.

Beāte Zviedre, who has been nominated for the Great Music Award 2020 in the Young Artist of the Year category, has been singing in the vocal group “Framest” since 2010 and performing as a soloist in various projects. She has performed with chamber musicians, various jazz ensembles and leading Latvian orchestras, and has given concerts in Europe, China, Japan and Korea.

On December 29, the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra will perform this programme at the Vidzeme Concert Hall in Cēsis.

Tickets for Liepāja Symphony Orchestra concerts are available at “Biļešu Paradīze” ticket office.
